Another dog poisoned: Bobette Riales says harassment worse since suing Scientology - 2020-02-10
Ten days after Chrissie Carnell Bixler and Cedric Bixler-Zavala had to put down a dog that ate meat laced with rat poison tossed into their Los Angeles yard, another plaintiff in their lawsuit against the Church of Scientology, Bobette Riales, says her dog began a 42-hour ordeal of vomiting, diarrhea, and bleeding on January 31 that had her sedating the animal and praying that it would survive at her house in rural Indiana.
"My house looked like a murder scene," she told us. "My poor dog is still not quite himself, but thank God he's alive. The vet said he either didn't injest enough poison to kill him for his size, or his reaction to it was so quick to expel it that it saved him. He's still not breathing right."
Bobette says she has no evidence that would point to a person who might have poisoned her dog, but ever since filing the lawsuit against Scientology and actor Danny Masterson last summer, the harassment she's alleging in the court case has only increased. Vandalism at her home, vandalism to her vehicles, someone following her children after school (which she reported to authorities), and people sitting in cars outside her house, sometimes for as long as nine hours at a time.
